Two Suspects Charged in Paxton Home Invasion


Three suspects have been identified and two men are behind bars following an investigation into a home invasion robbery in Paxton, Walton County Sheriff’s officials said.

On June 27th three masked men armed with handguns kicked in the front door of the home where the victim worked as a home Healthcare Nurse.

The victim was then struck in the face with the handgun, made to strip, and her hands zip tied together. The suspects disassembled the victim’s phone and ransacked the house searching for valuables before fleeing the scene.  

Walton County Sheriff’s Office Investigators were able to identify three suspects including Vance Gary Gettis, 29, of Paxton, Florida and Anthony Antron Wilkins, 35, of Florala, Alabama.

Anthony Wilkins was arrested on outstanding warrants for his involvement in the robbery home invasion with a firearm and was transported and booked into the Walton County Jail where he is being held on a $50,000 bond.

Vance Gettis is currently incarcerated in Covington County on unrelated charges and his extradition is pending. This is still an ongoing investigation and a third arrest is expected, deputies wrote in a news release.
